Lucille Valentine, Writer in Residence at Made in Newcastle. I will coach you with gentle and supportive critique on your writing.
Send me up to 2000 words which I will read, and then write on with ink of varying colours. We will meet for ¾ of an hour - this could be at Made in Newcastle in Nun Street, which has a 1-2-1 room that we can book - and we will discuss your work in detail. I will look at the story, the shape, the pace, the characters... and the grammar where it interferes with Story.
I am a story teller, a story writer and a poet. A couple of my stories have been published, a short play has been performed at the Live Theatre and I have an MA in Creative Writing. I write a monthly magazine column and I spent many years writing technical, IT stuff, where creativity is not advisable. As a continuous member of two high quality writers' groups for the past nine years (my youngest son was three months old when I started) I have gained lots of experience in giving really useful writing feedback.
This service will cost £20.

Today we are with Christine White aka Thread Spider Textiles
1. Fabrics and threads and fibres . I just love creating fabrics from scratch using combinations of wool, threads and hand dyed natural fabrics.
2. Colour There is nothing better than spending the morning surrounded by dye baths, turning plain white fabric into a myriad of rainbows colours. Working with colour is something I adore and am influenced by the stunning combination of colours in the world around us.
3. My wonderful Bernina sewing machine. It copes very well with the abuse I put it through and very rarely complains.
4. Bonda web - Where would I be without this fabulous substance .Of course I very rarely use it to hold fabric together. I’m much more likely to paint it, add glitter to it and melt it.
5. My backroom staff, in other words my daughter who advises me and my husband who is always there for me, taxi’s me around ,stewards exhibitions and generally puts up with me. Both used to having thread spiders all around the house.
6. Wine and chocolate . Both help when things are not going so well and after a glass or two of red wine my work appears to look better !
